KILIMANJARO:
To the Roof of Africa

A National Geographic publication
Author: Audrey Salkeld

Floating over the plains of East Africa, more mirage than mountain, Kilimanjaro exudes more mirage than mountain, Kilimanjaro exudes mystery and romance. At the same time, it is an accessible mountain, drawing more than 20,000 visitors each year to its slopes and snowy dome. The climb up Kilimanjaro has been likened to a journey from the equator to the poles, passing as it does through zone after zone of climatic change, from tropical forest to frozen desert. And Kilimanjaro’s human history is no less rich than its natural history. Close to the cradle of mankind, the mountain has watched history unfold at its foot, from the earliest hunter-gatherers and the scramble of colonization to World War I battles and the wave of independence that swept Africa in the mid-20th century.

In Kilimanjaro: To the Roof of Africa, Sallkeld presents a comprehensive portrait of this noble mountain and its myriad facets. Published in conjunction with David Breashears’s IMAX® film about Kilimanjaro, this book is an fascinating journey to the roof of Africa.
